with what it comes after, the presidential election. what if we found out about that connection, if any, and why this comes just days after the election? >> reporter: well, that's a great question and i think a lot of those questions will be thrown at the white house, and they have already, i can assure you. the fbi, obviously, if there was an investigation going on would have known about this, the white house would have known about this. but there's not always necessarily a reason to make a change. if there is an investigation and anything serious that they feel like they need the opportunity to follow up on, there's a chance that moves wouldn't have been made. but the timing of it, obviously, with the election coming up is very curious. >> and there are some who say that the benghazi hearings are next week, following up on the attack at the consulate in libya. >> reporter: that's right. >> there are concerns that maybe this is a conspiracy, that this was timed perfectly to get the cia director out before that. any reporting on that? >> reporter: well, there are a lot of conspiracies i

administration knew about this before the election? >> no, but wouldn't we all love to know the answer to that. that really is a burning question. just days after the election, something like this comes out. clearly something like this had been going on for a while. it wasn't -- you know, it's not likely that a couple of days after the election, general petraeus had a crisis of conscience and decided this is the time now for me to come clean on everything. which also makes you wonder, did other people know about this? was there the possibility they could have used this against him or to black mail him in any way? that would have spoken directly to his ability to protect secrets as well. lots of unanswered questions. more will be coming out in the coming days. >> the other questions, did the administration, if they knew about it decide not to let this be announced before the i election because they didn't want to do anything that would impact the election? does that raise security concerns. fran, cnn is not reporting that petraeus admitted to having an affair, just that he admitted to having an

after the president was re-elected. coming just on the eve of major hearings involving the benghazi. >> right. >> -- the failed operation over there. what are you hearing? >> that's the one question senator finestein had. she says i don't understand the timing of this. she pointed out, yes, there are hearings coming up next week. she does -- there are questions about that. what she did say is kind of interesting to me about general petraeus is that she said he actually loved the job. she said he had a big design for the job. and that he had just returned from a five-day trip to the middle east. and she also had a point and i think she's seen a lot of this over the course of her long career which is she said the transition to civilian life is very hard when you're a general whose got medals from your shoulder down to your belt. and he was in a different environment at the cia. constantly being questioned. things being thrown at him. when you're a general, not so much. so she thinks there may have been a real adjustment for him. and i asked her whether she thought the white house woul

the elections. why didn't the white house know about it? >> you know, they looked at that very carefully which is what are our notification requirements. they pulled other documents and read them and said do we have a national security issue here? no, it doesn't appear we do. do we have a major security violation here? no. do we have criminal activity. notify them about what. the director of national intelligence, who is up the chain of command, petraeus' boss and said here it is, now you know about it. >> but they notify him until just a day before election or the day of the election. >> that's right. and i think what you're going to see here is from the fbi's standpoint and from director mueller's standpoint, i served under director mueller, one are we doing the right thing? number two as a steward of the fbi how do we keep the fbi from being embroiled in politics unnecessarily and the calculus here is what's the flip side of this coin? how would this have affected the election, the white house -- >> no, no, no. paula broadwell according to the "wall street journal" had access to classified
on for several months. yet now it appears that they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. and you've got this type of investigation, the fbi investigating e-mails, the e-mails leading to the cia director, and it's taking four months to find out that the cia director was involved. >> cnn's barbara starr is following this developing story, she's live at the pentagon for us. good morning. tell us, what is the status of the investigation right now? >> well, good morning, alina.

petraeus, that he resigned after the election and no one knew a thing until this came out? >> no, it's simply not credible. i speak in part not just as a state department alumnus but the justice department too. i can't believe if the f.b.i. investigating the c.i.a., to agencies who have no love loss between them, the f.b.i. uncovered possible problems with communications from the c.i.a.'s director, i have to believe that the director of the f.b.i. would have been informed of this in a matter of nanoseconds and i would be sunday if the f.b.i. director did not immediately talk to the attorney general as soon as he learned about this potential problem. and i then find it hard to believe that the attorney general wouldn't talk to the president. so we don't know exactly what the timing is, but i simply don't think on something this potentially consequential that the information drifted around at low levels for weeks or months. >> it's like the november surprise. they talked about the drone attack that iran fired on a drone on november 1st but that didn't come out. >> that's i think someth
